Here the elusive update gingerly pokes its head out from the bushes. Cautious, tentative, yet eager to leap full force into the daylight when the time is right. And the time is right! Right now!

Here's a partial piece of what my inked pages look like right before I scan them in for colouring. This is the bottom half of page 23 of 'Project: Roffelcopter' aka 'B-Universe' aka Untitled Long Term Comic Book Project. Another flashback scene like the green coloured ones I posted some time ago.

Something involving music was the request here.

Cross generational schoolgirl action

Quick contribution to a DrawingBoard.org thread.

You know, I'm really starting to dislike that intro to my book posted below. It needs more tweaking. There's no sense of speed and the lead up to the helipcopter crash on page three doesn't work. The rest of the book is coming together really smoothly, just this intro that doesn't want to cooperate for some reason.

Intro sequence colour test

Howard goes out with a bang. Or a "KA-BOOM" as the case may be. :p

This is pages 1-4 of the book. Same as the other colour tests, i'm leaving out most of the dialogue for now.

What I might do moving forward here is to release the story in chapters on my website as I finish them, rather than wait until the whole thing goes to print. Say, 4 chapters, 20-25 pages each, something like that.

Make sure to click on the images to see the full size versions.

Colour test pages

Plugging right along. These two pages are part of a flashback sequence that occurs about a third of the way through the story. The fellow in the glasses is my protagonist. His name is Howard H. Reynolds.

I'm working on the intro sequence right now. It was initially a 10 page car chase, then it was a 6 page car chase, and, as of RIGHT NOW, it is a totally redrawn four page car chase. I had to hack that thing to pieces and rebuild from scratch to get it to work. It works much better as a short flash of gun toting craziness, rather than the extended action movie thing I had going before. Fun times. Just fiddling with the colour on that part now.
